Southern Ocean Expedition: Falklands, South Georgia Island and Antarctica
Loring Pollack & David Bigio

Loring Pollack and David Bigio have a keen interest in experiencing iconic marine wildlife. With a specific interest in larger animals, they have had the privilege of being up close and personal with big cetaceans, pinnipeds, sharks, mantas & more - from above and below the surface of the ocean. Recently they scratched an item from their bucket list: an expedition that included the Falklands, South Georgia and the Antarctic peninsula. Please join them to share their experiences with penguins, whales, elephant seals and other pinnipeds of the Southern Ocean. Loring and David are experienced travelers and scuba divers. They share their passions with others by volunteering as marine biology educators and through Loring's art.
